Although maps are informative, they're usually quite boring to look at, but that's not the case with these maps created by Jenni Sparks.

The British artist created 'London by Hand,' which is a series of hand-drawn maps detailing the City of London. Not only do the maps indicate streets and important landscapes, they creatively depict hidden treasures in London that won't otherwise be seen on regular maps. London by Hand is drawn with meticulous detailing that points out to viewers popular hot spots and hidden boroughs that reside in the city.

Reading this map is a fun way to get around, as Sparks guides viewers to lesser-known but quirkier shops, birthplaces of celebrities, local history and more. This talented artist worked for over two months to produce these highly detailed microscopic maps.
